More Unhinged Reporting From the Left

Thus Spoke Annekornblutra:

FORT WAINWRIGHT, Alaska, Sept. 11 -- Gov. Sarah Palin linked the war in Iraq with the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, telling an Iraq-bound brigade of soldiers that included her son that they would "defend the innocent from the enemies who planned and carried out and rejoiced in the death of thousands of Americans."

The idea that the Iraqi government under Saddam Hussein helped al-Qaeda plan the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, a view once promoted by Bush administration officials, has since been rejected even by the president himself. But it is widely agreed that militants allied with al-Qaeda have taken root in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion.

Also: the idea that troops headed to Iraq in September 2008 are on their way to fight Saddam Hussein's Iraqi government has been rejected by every sane person on the planet.

And for that matter, the Bush administration never promoted that view. Anne's lying about that, too.
